HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The Rocket City is an entirely different place than it was when it was founded decades ago. Now city leaders are asking your help to shape what the city will look like decades from today.
“‘The Big Picture” is what city planners are calling a huge 18-month undertaking to create a new city-wide, long-range plan.
Tuesday evening hundreds of residents meet with city leaders to look over the planning process and give their input.
This is the first time in more than 40 years for the city to embark on such a sweeping undertaking.
Huntsville’s long-range urban planner, Dennis Madsen, and the city’s planning director, Michelle Jordan,brought in Lakey Boyd, an Atlanta-based urban planning consultant to join in the effort.
You can get in on the process by visiting The Big Picture website, or you can Tweet about it using #bigpicturehsv
